  • It is a very great to go and spend at least a half day. There are diverent hiking trips, a sea aquarium downstairs and of course the seals. You can come very close to them and when it's feeding time t...  more »

  • We have no children and don't often go to zoos or aquariums, partially due to humane-treatment-of-animals issues. We did go to Ecomare and loved it. It's a bit expensive, yes, but we figure part of th...  more »

  • It was fine. it's good to learn more things about nature and the things that we are doing on the world.
  • What is ecomare? It will not tell you in Dutch web site. This is a small marine education center for kids. Most of the sea animals are samples only. It shows you how Waddenzee forms in North Holland (site 1)and shows evolution of sea creatures. Site 2 shows Dutch people bulldozing the coast of Texel. There is an underground aquarium on site 3 but the fishes are a few and general type. A few seals are living on site 4 which is open area. Site 5 is a walk in Duinpark which I did not do because a walk in Texel beach (20km long) and national park will be sufficient. Site 6 is a whale hall with plastic models. The insect hall is very tiny and next to exit to site 4(I almost missed).
  • It's fun to look at all the animals and fish, an amazing experience. There could be a bit more interactive things.
  • Not that much to see but still amazing! Seals a too cute. The bus doesn't stop right next to it but down the road to the right - missed mine.
  • Nice place to visit if you like nature and animals. You learn a lot of the ecosystem of Texel and the Northsea. Simon Visit my website: www.noireblanc.de
